At the request of middle school teachers, members of the Advancement Team took time to introduce email etiquette to middle school students. These students are now equipped with all of the tools they need for proper communication and collaboration in their studies. Here are a few lessons we taught them in the lesson:
The students were receptive to the lesson, asked great questions, and were given homework at the end. Each student had to write an email to Mrs. Dallas using the tools they learned in the lesson.
Students in grades K-4 began our spring gardening efforts by starting lettuce, kale and spinach seeds in classrooms. We hope these seedlings will be ready to transplant in our FWC gardens by mid-February. We will continue to start seeds indoors through mid February – eggplant, tomatoes, and snow peas are on the list for next week.
Students in the 7th grade robotics and coding class visited the clubhouse.se last Tuesday. They got a quick tour of the facility and learned about the software and hardware used in 3D printing technology.
As eighth graders learned about Newton’s laws in their study of forces in motion, they were challenged to overcome the forces of gravity and friction with an engineering challenge to design a balloon powered car that would travel at least five meters. William B. exceeded all expectations with a car that traveled more than twenty meters.
